Experience or Experiences


I saw this quote from Frank Dick today, very much in concert with what I have been saying in this blog over the past few months: “You can’t learn faster only by having access to your own experience and knowledge,” insists Dick. “It’s a no-brainer. You need access to the experience of everybody. But in our sport (Track & Field), everyone is brought up to be an individual, and fight with everyone else. In a team sport it’s not as difficult to get people to work together. That’s a cultural shift that has to take place in athletics.” Frank is the new Chairman of Scottish Athletics; he was the Chief Athletics Coach for England in their golden days in the 1980’s. He has always been an inspiration and a source knowledge and wisdom for me.
